Default Nancy Pelosi Is Spending Shutdown at Hawaii Resort

Putative future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is so dedicated to finding a compromise solution to the current government shutdown she left town for an Hawaiian vacation.

Quote:
Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi is spending the government shutdown at a luxury resort in Hawaii, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Pelosi, who has put blame squarely on President Donald Trump for the current government shutdown, was spotted Thursday vacationing in Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where room accommodations range from $899-a-night for a standard room to $4,899-a-night for the presidential suite.

The resort, on Hawaii's Big Island, features a golf course, six restaurants, and a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront pool.

Oh the sacrifice Pelosi is willing to make to help the victims of the shutdown.

Contrast Pelosi's Hawaiian vacation at a luxury resort with President Trump remaining in the WH cancelling his vacation plans.

I read a couple days ago that the House issued a statement that the reps would be given 2 days notification prior to the vote. So go ahead and take your vacation.

Your check will still be in the mail.

She’s the minority leader in the House, which means she has basically no authority or ability to resolve this stalemate. Where’s the story about Paul Ryan’s whereabouts? Until next Thursday, this is his responsibility.

The claim that she has no responsibility to help solve the impasse is absurd. She has shamelessly pandered to the far Left by flatly denying the wall funding then leaving town making a resolution impossible until she becomes Speaker. She demagogues about Trump victimizing the Federal workers with a shutdown then takes off for an Hawaiian vacation in an ultra luxury resort.

I don't know where Paul Ryan is but he sure is not going to be Speaker much longer. Besides, the House already passed $5 billion for the wall.

She can’t do anything until January 3, so what difference does it make where she is right now? I presume that on January 3, she’ll introduce and the House will pass the same clean CR the Senate approved unanimously last week and then send it back to McConnell. Where’s the story about where McConnell is spending this week?

As I recall Pelosi is currently the minority leader in the House as well as the once and future Speaker. She has repeatedly condemned the President for the partial shutdown decrying the impact on Federal workers. Yet, in a classic "let them eat cake" move she decamps on a luxury vacation illustrating just how little she cares about what she is saying.

No doubt when Pelosi finally returns she will engineer a CR with no wall funding in keeping with the policies of radical Leftist open border advocates.

Which passed in the senate a week and a half ago without a single Republican vote against. Who knew there were so many radical leftists in the Senate GOP caucus. I always thought there was something Orin Hatch was hiding.

(And the House minority leader has about as much ability to control what the House does as you or I. She cannot get a bill to the floor and cannot block anything with majority support.)

Which I would guess has a lot to do with the shutdown.

Come 5 more days, Nancy will not be the minority leader.

You know you are comparing her with King Arthur right?
